  1. Hello Devon, As far as I can see on your pictures, this is the same motor as in our 1927 6-72 Peerless 5 pass. May be you could put on the post pictures of the other side of the motor ? I have still the vacuum pump on our car. I will try to find pictures. Philippe
  2. Hello Scot, Congratulations for your purchase. I was following it from Belgium but without possibility to bid (not allowed to non USA members) The weight is 1.700 kg or 3.675 pounds Length (complete with safety tire) is 178 1/2 inches + 3 inches for bumpers? (pare-choc in French). The wheel base of the 6-72 five passengers is 126 1/2 inches (your car) and the seven passengers is 133 inches. Width is 68 inches Data from the Sales Manual of Peerless 6-72. I have sent to Jefferson Brown copy of this book and of the user manual + documentations on 6-72.
  3. Hello Devon and Jeff, You could may be use the serial number to known if you have a 6-70 or a 6-72 : Car serial number ....... Motor number ............. Model ..... Series For 6-72 : B720,001 to B720,279 .. 62,801 to 68,054 ............ 72 ...... Second 302,501 to 307,788 ...... idem ......................... 72 ...... First (in addition, on the top of each door, you could find a stamp begining with "Six 5S" maybe the pre-number for 6-72) For 6-70 : 299,505 to 302,291 ...... 60,005 to 62,791 ............ 70 (See the post "How to identify your Peerless...from a Spare parts catalog from Peerless"). I hope this could help you ? But 6-70 or 6-72, you have a beautifull open car !
  4. Hello 1926 Peerless, Sorry for this late answer but I was not on the forum from 2 months. I have a beautifull Peerless SIX-80 Instruction and Description Manual of 64 pages for you. I will make a free copy for you and Jeff. Give me some days to do it and send it to you. You will find 30 pictures of internal parts of the car. 6 pictures of the engine with a beautifull Side sectional view of Engine and a front outline view of Engine, Timing Chain and Sprockets. Please, send me or to Jeff your post adress and I will send it to you. I have also a spare parts catalog of 1932 and a interchangable data catalog (free). Philippe.
  5. Hello Jeff, There is also the Veteran Car Club Grand Ducal (Grand Duché de Luxembourg - small country near Belgium). There is a list of all member's cars with pictures for each (Bugatti, Lagonda, Rolls Royce, ... and our Peerless) The address is http://www.vccgd.lu. I still have to put the new pictures of the Peerless after complete restoration (in Dark Wine/Dark Grey). Philippe

Two-tone effect on all models except Limousine, which is Blue with Black upper structure. (Phaetons) - Blue and Grey. (Roadsters) - Two-tone effects in Brown, Green, Blue and Maroon."
